senator and tea party fave rand paul. paul spoke this morning at the u.s. hispanic chamber of commerce setting a tone that reminded some of president george w. bush. >> i think the conversation needs to start by acknowledging that we aren't going to deport 12 million illegal immigrants. if you wish to work, if you wish to live and work in america then we will find a place for you. >> joining us right now for reaction to this and other news of the day of course is senator marco rubio, republican of florida. senator, thanks for joining us. what is your reaction to rand paul's announcement today? how important is this to the cause of immigration reform? >> well, first, thanks for having me on. i wish i had been on yesterday. i could have been the answer to a trivia question. anyway, on the senator paul's speech it is a very good development. there is a growing consensus that something needs to be done about immigration but it needs to be dmon a way that is responsible. in essence we need to do three things. number one we have to reform our legal immigration system. it needs to be moderniz
and the elderly. paul brennan is in rome. it has been a spectacular morning there, much to see, much to be heard. recap what you have seen so far. >> much to digest as well. it was going to be a momentous occasion, the inauguration of a new pope, just five years, the first since 2005. but in church terms that is relatively a quick succession. what we have is a huge crowd, a huge congregation, more than 130 countries represented in st. peter's. a very interesting homily from the pope are in the homily is the part of the mass where he can deliver his own text. it is not bound by the liturgy. he can speak with his own words about things that he cares about, and he chose to speak about principles, responsibility, tenderness, creation. what we took away from that was he was speaking about the protection of the environment. he said when men fail in this responsibility, that leads to destruction and hearts become hard. it is not just concern us as in the catholics, it concerns everybody. the protection of the whole of creation, the beauty of creation, it he hearkened back to st. francis of assisi. he s
actually stop it. the house republicans are passing the paul ryan plan, and so then they'll go to conference and that where the heavy lifting will begin. >> shepard: the paul ripe plan has zero chance. >> it will pass the house and then they'll try to iron it out between the two plans. the paul ryan plan on its own would not be signed by president obama, would not pass the senate, burt it will pass the house. >> shepard: mike, thank you. meantime, something about our economy does not add up. we all know that. the latest government numbers show consumers spending grew at a strong pace. that's great because consumer spending counts for 70% of the total economic activity. here's the weird part. we're not seeing the expected comparable rise in our paychecks. we're spending more but no making more, and we're not spending more on credit cards. in fact the expert said the payroll tax hike would slow spending. it did not. so what is this? and rick suggests that more americans are taking advantage of the underground economy, earning and spending cash off the books to avoid taxes or othe
want it "out front," david frum and paul begala. paul, this doesn't sound like the harry reid we all know. this is a guy to say, you know what? 57% of the people in this country favor this assault weapons ban. i'm going to take it to the floor and if republicans want to shoot it down, then you know what? fine. i'll let them take the blame and looking at that and the fact he has a high rating from the nra, one might get a little suspicious. >> first off, he is going to take it to the floor but it's a separate amendment. i will not be part of the larger gun safety bill including things like expanded background checks, mental health, school safety, gun trafficking and ammunition clips and may be split out and that's because of simple math. you know, i'm a democrat. i can't blame the democrats. been 20 years since we had a piece of major gun legislation. back in the day we had at least nine, if memory serves, nine republican senators voting for the assault weapon ban 20 years ago. today there are zero. and you can't pass it when you got to get to 60 and there are 0 republicans supporting
a piece you have up about paul ryan. you say it's paul ryan's disappearing act. his stock could not have shot up much higher when he was chosen as mitt romney's running mate and now out of the spotlight. >> this story quotes dan senor. for someone who was the nominee, as the story says, the "it" boy, younger face of the republican party, paul ryan has perhaps deliberately been out of the national plilt conversation because he has a busy day job. not only is he chairman of the budget committee with a huge job but been a wing man to speaker boehner even though not a formal member of the top part of membership. ryan has consulted on everything that matters. and has become the tea party whisperer for leadership and the person conservatives trust and he tries to market leadership packages to the conservatives. >> i guess disappearing so far, he hasn't been out nationally as much as he was but not disappearing behind the scenes. >> tuesday night he was told he would not be vice president and wednesday morning, john boehner called him up and said i need you in the middle of the washington. ther
. they -- >> did you bring your gulp. >> they gave her votes in the straw poll to rand paul and right behind him to marco rubio. but sarah palin taking on karl rove in a thinly-veiled jibe at rove and rove come back on fox news. >> if they feel that strongly about who gets to run in that party, then they should buck up or stay in the truck, buck up and run. the architects can head on back to -- they can head on back to the great lone star state and put their name on some ballot. >> if she can plan primaries other people can plan primaries. i don't think i'm a particularly good candidate, a balding foot phat guy and if i did run for office and win, i would serve out my term, i wouldn't leave office mid-term. >> ouch. >> is palin still a factor? she brought the crowd to their feet on saturday afternoon. >> i don't think she's a factor at all. i think she's just an amusing reality show to watch. >> she accused the president, she said that the white house is a reality show. this is a woman via mark burnett did her own reality show and she accused barack obama of having a reality show. >> she's got a
paul and marco rubio teaming up. rand paul to the intellect you'll voice of the party and marco rubio to the more emotional voice. chris christie can do something neither of them can do. this sort of no nonsense cut right to it. delivers a great punch line. tells it like it is. he has more flexibility to do that as governor. i think when you're in congress, you have to be a little more careful with your words but no one can do what chris christie does. we need him too. >> i think what you see is his strength as a candid candidate for a candid camera world. mitt romney had a lot of problems just being videoed, being himself. it was worse than the other problems he had which was not being himself. neither worked out very well. and chris christie does this thing, when he talks off the cuff. to kids or teachers or yelling at reporters, people love it. if you look on youtube at the viral videos, and he has created several. eight of the top ten are him being spontaneous. you can see, he says it is reprehensible. this is the crap i have to hear. >> how my uncle talk. >> what the hell are we
cain recently called rising republican star rand paul a wacko-bird. paul responded at the cpac conference. >> the gop of old has grown stale and moss-covered. [ cheers ] i don't think we need to name any names, do we? >> reporter: now, these divisions have become personal lately in the gop, and i think a way, wolf, we don't normally see. but they're substantive divisions as well. how to tackle the issues like immigration reform, things like same-sex marriage. something that's becoming increasingly popular. and, also, how to tackle women's issues in a way that doesn't repel women, as mitt romney did in november. >> lots of work ahead. thanks very much, brianna for that report. the report, by the way, repaired by the republican national committee, is remarkably blunt in discussing the party's problems. the rnc chairman is blunt, as well. reince priebus is joining us now live from party headquarters. reince, thanks very much for coming in. >> hey, wolf. thanks for having me. i told you it was going to be big and bold, and i know a lot of people didn't expect it this way. but that's what we
assured themselves a small place in history with their legal challenge. paul is a fit instructor and personal trainer. jeff zarillo, two of the biggest plaintiffs. >> we can't get married and we love each other. >> they said they never thought they would become the face of gay marriage, but their fight to put an end to the prop 8 is when jeff saw this gay video based on real stories. jeff sent it to paul. >> i am a massachusetts parent, helplessly watching public schools teach my son that gay marriage is okay. >> just to get a reaction. >> and sure enough, when i finally got him to launch it, he stood up off the couch and he said we have to do something. >> what they ended up doing is producing a response video called weathering the storm. >> a storm has arrived. >> created with lies and misrepresentations. >> i think we ended up being in the legal case because we were loud mouths about how prop 8 really defined the damage that we felt. >> debate over same-sex marriage has gone back and forth in california. june 2008 a court decision made it legal, and that november prop 8 voters
minutes. we will bring that to you when it comes back live. >> senator rand paul seeming to have a citizenship. talking about the importance of reform and moving the party forward but as our first read team points out, the opponents to immigration right now are saying right now, let's slow down. nbc news senior editor mark murray joining me now. mark, who are these senators and what are they saying? >> it is handful of senators. you have this ranking member of the judiciary committee, chuck grassley, along with high profile tea party types like ted cruz and senator from utah pup have texas in there. they wrote a letter asking senate judiciary chairman pat lachey to slow down, that it is going too fast. sometimes when people say, hey, slow down on this type of legislation, that is one tactic to be able to defeat it. we saw with healthcare legislation in 2009 within 2010, a lot of opponent said, let's slow down, let's stop the hearings, that is the first step of stopping legislation. >> let's talk to rand paul for a second. how do we think his aspirations may be influencing a quick
raising taxes. now senator patty murray, the architect of the senate plan will work with congressman paul ryan to try to bridge the gap between the two radically different proposals. >>> well, there are some pivotal arguments being heard at the supreme court this week as the justices take up two key cases involving gay marriage. they include california's proposition 8 case on tuesday and the defense of marriage act or doma on wednesday. one of the top attorneys arguing against prop 8 which bans sa same-sex marriage in the state predicted a win while speaking on "meet the press." >> every time the supreme court makes a decision, it's making a decision that certain fundamental rights are too important to be left to the ballot box. we've done it with race, with women, with every discriminating class and, remember, when the united states supreme court outlawed the bans on interracial marriage in 1967, 64% of the american people opposed interracial marriage and yet when that decision came down, there wasn't a ripple. >> today more than 160 rallies are planned across the country in support of w
to speed on american. senator rand paul. >> i think the legislature is about ten years behind the public. i've introduced amendments to quit sending money t and build bridges here in the united states rather than in egypt. 90% of the people agree with me 80% of my senate disagree with me. bill: do you agree with rand paul on that? >> it's a little more complicated than that. he is correct that the senate is not as responsive to the will of the american people as it should be. for example it continues to spend too much, another point that senator paul has made. on the other hand people in political office need to be leaders as well and they need to explain why, for example, we send military assistance to egypt. we want the egyptian military to you supportive of u.s. policy. when they buy american equipment, when they receive our help they tend to be more supportive of our position. the egypt leader is trying to play both side. if the united states withdrew awful its assistance i'm not sure he wouldn't flip over to the wrong side. it's more complicated than saying we shouldn't send aid to cou
. >> that was the "washington post's" assessment of it. >> the same criticism has been labeled to the paul ryan budget, which uses as part of its calculation, defunding broadly, president obama's health care law. which i think, i think we probably can agree, is not likely to happen. if both sides are offering budget proposals that are nonviable. how do we get to a budget proposal that is viable, do you expect that to happen? >> well, i think it's important for our country that we do. and the thing that's, that i think is so important about paul ryan's budget is that it actually becomes a balanced situation. where you have a balanced budget. the democrat proposal -- never balances, not this year, not in ten years. never. and american families realize they have to live within their means, they can't spend money they don't have. they understand the concept of a balanced budget and i was back in wyoming last weekend, the people at home still believe that over half of all the money they send to washington is wasted. so the concerns are that these budgets that we see specifically the democrats' budget, it's more,
, rand paul just yesterday called for comprehensive change before a crowd of hispanic business leaders. but he never used the word citizenship and says a secure border has to come first. behind the scenes right now, some senators are working on provisions for a path to citizenship. what does it all mean? joining me to talk about what that path could look like, nbc latino contributor raul reyes. it's good to see you. >> good morning. >> can we talk about rand paul first? because immediately his office pushes back on the whole idea of citizenship. but did you hear something that suggested to you that he's having a change of heart? that could, in fact, be influential with other conservatives? >> yes, absolutely. and i think, i would venture to say that maybe we've reached a tipping point. in broad strokes, it's complicated. you know, he -- first he says he's in favor of path to citizenship but doesn't want to use the words, but he is speaking about it. but that in itself, that is tremendous because look at who he is, you know, he won the cpac poll, he's a likely 2016 candidate. he represe
of taxpayer money in st. paul. this was unprecedented. it had been set for additional this nominee has been expressed as not having been candid in his testimony. candid is it kind of one of the funny words in politics that means he didn't tell the whole truth. this is also somebody who refused to do his fundamental job which is to fully prosecute voter intimidation that fell under his watch. these are just some of the areas of concern that i think that senators have and they need to ask questions and get answers and i don't think they're going to like the answers, particularly as to his lack of candor. >> there was a case that was going to go up for the u.s. supreme court, that challenged the theory of discrimination na mr. perez apparently believes in. that talks about how, it's basically whether you can proof racial discrimination by looking at statistics, rather than intent of specific cases and that was about to head to the supreme court. apparently mr. perez didn't like the chances of that theory being upheld by the supreme court, so he steps in on the case and tries to convince the ci
of the balance sheet, as a business guy, i find that troubling. >> shepard: the senate rejected the paul ryan house republican budget plan. we expect they will vote late tonight on patty murray murray's democratic senate and it should have enough votes to pass. >> shepard: isn't most of this about getting people on the record so that politicians can use that for people and against people come the 2014 mid-term? reporter: no question about that. familiar topics, the president's healthcare law, about turn three years old, texas senator ted cruz propose egg an amendment to repeal the law. failed 54-45 but forced some lawmakers to weigh in on an up popular law. cruz says it hasn't lived up to expectations. >> when obama care was being proposed the president told americans the average american family would see our premiums drop by $2,500. instead, today, the average american family has seen our premiums rise by $3,000. that's a $5,500 difference between what was promised and what has been delivered. so, for democrats on the 2014 ballot, such as mary lan drew of louisiana, mark pryor of arkansas, t
by another 4.6 trillion over the next decade. paul ryan says this is the only way to balance america's books. >> their plan this year, they can fire it and go to a new one next year. those plans compete against each other around drives down costs and increases quality. it is a bipartisan idea. we want to apply that idea to the rest of the medicare for the younger generation. what this shows you can make medicare solvent and sustainable. you can make sure you don't change it for current seniors and save it for the next generation with these kinds of reforms. bill: that plan is on the way to the white house. republican budget plan for 2014 calls for a balanced budget in 10 years and sharp cuts for safety net programs for the poor and other programs. >> sharp blow to the president's health care law three years after it was passed republican senator orrin hatch and democratic senator amy klobuchar leading the charge repealing a key medical device tax that helps bankroll the law. stuart varney, anchor of "varney & company" on the fox who upwards 40 million people will be paying a whole lot more f
relationships may affect his decision on same-sex marriage is an open question. paul smith has some insight. he's an openly gay attorney who argued one of the landmark cases involving gay rights, striking down laws banning sexual relations between same-sex couples. before that, he was also a clerk for justice lewis powell. >> i think it has some impact on people to know family members and friends who are out and gay and happy and functioning in society. on the other hand, it's not by any means going to be a good prigtor. >> reporter: we'll find out starting tuesday when the court hears the challenge to problem decision 8, california's asame-sex marriage ban. that challenge is brought by california couples including jeff and paul who say they have a right to marry just like heterosexual couples and the state's domestic partnership laws aren't good enough. >> the term "marriage" is important. it has global recognition. no one celebrates a domestic partnership-versary. they celebrate an an aversery of marriage. >> that was joe johns reporting. and we'll tell you a strange legal alliance will argue
the paul ryan thing with the big asterisk and say -- >> what do you think? >> that's exactly the way you have to approach this. we do need -- first off, this issue is about 5, 10, 15 years from now, stablelizing the debt at less than 15% gdp and the essence getting entitlements under control in the out years. as part of that, you have to have tax reform and significant tax reform. and actually, simpson/bowles, a commission i served on, laid out a way to do it, got the tax rates down on the personal side to 9, 15 and 23% and the corporate to 26%. and you need to bring the corporate rate down to 24, 25, 26% and need to go to a territorial system. but you can't do that independent of the individual system, because if you have a huge gap between the top individual rate, say today it's at 42.5%, and if you took the corporate 25%, everybody started -- >> because then you have small business. small business got screwed at the expense of big businesses in the last tax bill. so you're right. so i -- look, i say, you're going to have big problems if you try to have a big personal and corporate tog
to talk about the misguided priorities laid out in the republican budget as presented by chairman paul ryan. once again chirme ryan has proposed a budget that guts low-income program. the ryan budget not only does not end hunger now, it actually makes hunger in america worse than it is today. simply put, mr. speaker, we are currently not doing enough to end hunger now. there are over 50 million hungry americans in this country, 17 million are kids. over 47 million rely on snap, formerly known as food stamps, to put today food on their tables. without this program, real hunger, the actual absence of food, would be actually worse. the great recession is the primary reason hunger is so bad today. now, don't get me wrong, hunger has been getting worse since the presidency of ronald reagan. we almost eradicated hunger in america in the late 1970's, but hunger has been getting steadily worse in the decades since. but the great recession, the worst economic period we've faced since the great depression, resulted in millions more people hungry. millions of people who had to turn to snap as the

think it compares to paul ryan's budget. >> guest: there are two major differences. they certainly go in different directions. the paul ryan budget balances in ten years and does not raise taxes. patty murray's budget never balances and raises taxes $1.5 trillion over the next decade. so what the democrats and patty murray are saying in addition to the $600 billion tax increase that obama won in january and the trillion dollars of obamacare tax increases that most americans are unaware of, they don't know that they're hitting, they haven't gotten a lot of press attention, obama never talks about the trillion dollars of tax increases starting this year for obamacare. so 1.6 plus 1.5, that's a $3 trillion dollar tax increase over the next decade if the democratic budget passed. and, of course, it never balances because they turn around and spend another, um, more money, hundreds of billions more on stimulus programs as well as other stuff. so they do more spending with more taxes. what the ryan budget does and why i think it's very interesting for the republican future is that it reform

the curtain column you say the gop now belongs to senators marco rubio and rand paul. how so? >> you might as well call it the rand/rubio party, because the energy, the excitement and the power in the republican party is now outside washington and the clearest place to see this is on immigration. on the show in last couple of days we have seen senator rand paul moving toward friendliness of immigration reform and marco rubio in the past has expressed support for it. if they come out with tough, real immigration reform is how it will get to the president's desk. if they are for it, house republicans who are still reluctant are not going to want to get to the right of them. a sign of resistance there is still in the house, house republican that we talked to said there is a hispanics panic among the party elite donors and leaders and take senator paul and rubio to bring them along. >> hispanics paunnic? one way to put it. >> we have this brown guy running in georgia. he is the one that says barack obama follows the soviet constitution! >> soviet constitution? >> not even the russian constitut

these issues into the normal structural debate inside a place like the senate. if you look at rand paul's filibuster of a week ago, let's remember two things. he was talking about drones, but ask yourself why. what was he filibustering? -- he wast filibustering a nomination. it seems over and over again the only way people can raise these issues inside the senate is to question a nomination, whether it is senator hagel for the a, the confirmation hearing to bring them up, or if you are lucky, to t an amendment on the floor to debate these issues that are really central to our foreign policy, which is what i attempted to do along with senator corker of tennessee with respt to the libya situation. we need to have a full discussion on issues such as drones, and another piece of the drones issue here in the united states -- and this is where i have been aligned in the past with what senator paul, senator lee, and people on the i wouldic side, too -- call libertarians, people who are concerned about individual rights. when you look at the issue of apprehending, taining , iricans on american

for undocumented immigrants. congressman paul ryan spelled out his position in "the situation room" with wolf blitzer. >> well, i think we can get comprehensive immigration reform. i support reform. i supported the bush reforms in 2005 and 2006. i think we can find a way of making sure that people here with an undocumented status have an ability to adjust that status. we're not going to be able to deport 12 million people. and there's a way to do this without rewarding them for breaking the line or breaking the law, without rewarding them for cutting in line so they don't have a special and unique pathway so those who came here legally who paid the fines, who waited patiently are not penalized by letting people cut in front of them. i think there's a way to do this. and i would call it earned legalization status. >> let's bring in chief political analyst gloria borger. gloria, could it be that congress might actually get a little something done here? how close are lawmakers to coming up with an immigration reform plan that everyone likes or can agree to? >> i sense your skepticism because it'

who thought that. i think paul wolf wit would have been a proponent of that, that you could create a democracy ino iraq and have a catalytic effect on the region. but, you know, before we go totally from one extreme to the other, that, you know, nothing-- that history has actually comeng to an end and nothing can change in iraq. you know, in the glass one-quarter full side, they had elections. the u.n. validated the results. they weren't fraudulent. they were a lot more honest than they were in afghanistan. they have a parliament. the council of representatives. they passed a budget recently. there is political life in iraq. it's--y. it's-- whatever malikis an authoritarian figure but he's nothing like a saddam by anybody's estimation. so i just-- while there are reasons to be concerned in iraq and reasons to worry about the future, i don't think we should paint an entirely dark picture. and i think if you asked iraqis you'd get different perspectives. if you asked the kurds, i think they're glad there was the invasion. they have more autonomy than they've ever had before, having r
